Behavioral issue or Education issue? Language Immersion schools... buyer beware.

This petition had 24 supporters

Families and students at language immersion schools have faced many academic challenges. Frequently children are labeled as a behavioral problem and the educational problem is overlooked. Language Immersion children are frequently scoring lower on exams compared to other children their age.

To overcome many of the challenges I propose the following changes.

  1. Prior to entering a language immersion program, families should be informed that language immersion is not an optimal environment for all children.
  2. Families are educated about strengths, qualities and talents that make children more successful in a language immersion school. Testing offered before entering school.
  3. Annual testing completed near the end of the school year to evaluate academic placement. At a minimum, an evaluation of reading and writing should be performed.
  4. Summer school should be offered if testing determines that a child is below grade level in any subject area.
